Using additional doses of the vaccine may be part of a COVID-19 plan to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, but giving them every four months creates a potential risk of weakening the immune system, said Marco Cavaleri of the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

COVID-19 vaccines – first a booster, then a fourth dose?

Repeated vaccination at short intervals is not a sustainable long-term strategy – noted Cavaleri, who leads the EMA’s vaccination strategy team.

“There is also a risk of public fatigue from repeated booster doses,” added the EMA representative.

Instead of multiple doses in quick succession, states should start thinking about giving a booster at longer intervals, Cavaleri said. He completed that such vaccinations could take place every year at the beginning of winter such as flu vaccinations.

The EMA expert also said that there is currently no scientific evidence that would support the plan to administer the next, fourth dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Cavaleri stressed that additional research is also needed to decide whether it is necessary to use a vaccine specifically designed against the Omikron variant of the coronavirus.
